Wedding Flowers in Paris With Karen Tran


Last year I traveled to Paris to take part in Karen Tran’s Master Class. Today I came across a video and thought I’d share! It was just amazing to meet and work with Karen. Her floral designs have been a major influence and inspiration to our whole team. Her wedding flowers are created with a sense of lavish romance that really casts a spell.

You might recognize the lush tablescapes and ceremony decor we created for a styled shoot, from our gallery Charming Chateau. With photos by Christina Federova.

The shoot took place in Paris at Chateau de Bouffemont. You can learn more about Karen Tran’s Master Classes, and find some of the most beautiful wedding-flower inspiration, at The Floral Experience.

Wedding Accessories

That magical walk down the aisle starts with the long awaited bling, quickly becoming your new “best friend”. And that’s just the beginning of your wedding sparkle. While bling was once limited to bridal accessories and dress embellishments, stunning wedding jewelry is Hollywood’s hottest trend, splashed across the pages of bridal publications and prominently featured in wedding shows. Wedding bling can be used to accent centerpieces, canopies and cakes but is most commonly found in bouquets, adding glamour and a touch of elegance to your most sentimental blooms. You can find crystals and pearls in a variety of designs, colors and sizes. They are usually fashioned from crystals and rhinestones and even real diamonds, gems and pearls depending on your budget. Instead of the traditional bridesmaid’s gifts, if you want to do something special for your ladies in waiting, consider adding a beautiful touch to their bouquets as well and they can keep it as a momento. With so many brides looking to be unique this is one simple way to make your bouquet stand out. When it comes to your wedding day it’s the details that count!
